WOW – Illustrator Anthony Atkinson

WOW Anthony Atkinson

A piece of advice that I wish someone had told me when I started? I guess it would have to be to not think too much about your work – just get on and do it! Even now I waste way too much time thinking – I could be so much more productive!

Anthony Atkinson, 2013


I studied illustration at St Martins and then became an art teacher when I left.  It was a few years before I took the plunge and went freelance – that was back in 2008.
It was a really liberating experience, suddenly being your own boss but at the same time not knowing where your next job will come from!  As well as a few illustration jobs I’ve also been able to work as a freelance designer in different design agencies around Brighton. It’s been good to develop my own illustration practice without having to worry about illustration being my only source of income.  I’ve also completed a Masters in illustration over the last couple of years too and as a result have been working on my own short stories and graphic novels.

I love drawing and its amazing to be in a position to be able to make a living out of it!
